Day Two

Can it really be? Has it really been seventeen years since my sis J- and B- moved from Portland Maine to Portland Oregon? It seems like only ten or so, but I know it was a lot more than that. Thanks to DownEast, Portland, and Maine magazines and cell phones; she keeps pretty close to 'home'. It was a fun-filled three days on Hood River, with many large windows looking out on wondrous river sights. Lots of music, countless trains running back and forth on both shores, wind surfers, kite surfers, barge watching and of course the 4th's fireworks kept me busy. It was vacation, after all.

  7. That's amazing that they moved from Portland to Portland. I bet there are huge differences...but many similarities between the two.

  9. Nothing like a wonderful visit with a sibling! I am wondering... did she take a wrong flight, get confused, and just decide to stay in the other Portland?

    Bises,

  12. I'll take the copy of Smithsonian, please. Not Outside. I'm as white as they make 'em and don't spend much time in the sun.

  13. Nicely done, Birdman. I like the shot from above. There must be a stairwell or loft there. The Portland to Portland thing is a hoot. At least when you visit them, you can keep the "I never leave Portland" thing intact.
